The Lower Dess estate lies in Royal Deeside on the north side of the river Dee with uninterrupted views over the valley to the Forest of Birse. The estate enjoys a very private and secluded position in a totally unspoilt rural setting and yet is close to Aberdeen.
Mill of Dess Lodge: A truly luxurious 10 double bedroom, 10 en suite bathroom Lodge which offers top-end accommodation for guests. The Lodge is fully staffed.
Mill Cottage: Immediately adjacent to the river bank, this stone cottage sleeps four people in two twin bedrooms with a recently refurbished kitchen which is equipped for self-catering.
FISHING (SALMON & SEA TROUT)
The fishing at Lower Dess is on an exceptionally attractive, secluded left bank stretch of the river Dee which can be fished at low, medium and high water. Whilst the Dee’s reputation has traditionally been for prime spring fishing, more recently the summer fishing has been equally productive. The Dess fishings also benefit from a very good sea trout run in late June and July. View latest catch records here.
